This is a place which if tale be believed owes itself to two people and their ability to survive Dartmoor and its conditions and find a place to hunker down and save them. It sits just north of Princetown in an easy to get to spot. Here, in the late 1500’s, John Fitz and his wife were riding across the moor when mist descended and they got lost, circling the moor they tired and eventually found this place were water bubbled up in a spring. They drank here and in doing so the mist lifted and they realised that Princetown was near and they were saved. In gratitude John Fitz created a well here so that others could also enjoy these waters. Today the well is encircled by a wall and some boggy ground by the nearby river. The well is said to have powers to cure eye problems if you drink from here.
